"I think my interest in science and philosophy combined with my need for adventure with a purpose has led me to be a candidate for a mission to Mars, lifting off 2031. As a child I loved books about scientists discovering unknown places and my curiosity has let me on an adventurous path – including to lead expeditions that summited Mont Blanc. While this was fun, it started to feel like adventure for the sake of it – I was looking for purpose. I volunteered as a first aider to bring medical assistance to remote villages nestled in the mountains of Nepal. Now, living in the UAE, preparing for astronaut training, my friends and I are exploring unknown caves and sharing our discoveries and photos with the local geological society. We think we are about to discover the deepest cave on the Arabian Peninsula and another that could be the longest. I expect my most purposeful adventure will be the scientific discoveries we might make on Mars as a first step to colonizing other planets."
